Sex And Aging
I have a soft spot in my heart for the older adult population. Surprisingly, it is difficult to find a healthcare provider or therapist to openly talk to someone about their sexual and/or intimate life, especially if they are an older adult. Society has portrayed the older adult as a non-sexual person; not someone that has needs and desires. I aim to change that!
Sex and Disabilities
Who talks about sexuality to people with MS, or someone in a wheelchair, or someone with a spinal cord injury or open-heart surgery? The answer to that is….me! I am 100% an advocate for all people that want and deserve to have the intimate life they desire. As with sex and aging, not many providers or professionals will openly talk about sex with someone that has a disability or physical challenge. I am the advocate of change for this population! I am judgement-free and provide a safe and open space.
Sex & Aging
Sex & Aging
There is a lot of stigmatization that comes with the topics of ‘senior sex’, ‘sex & aging’ , etc. The truth is, we all have desires and needs and I am here to address the issues and miscommunications that come along with said topics. I offer services catered for the older adult population.
Disability & Post Surgical
Disability & Post Surgical
It is difficult to find a healthcare provider to openly with about your sexual and/or intimate life. And it’s definitely not easier if you’re an older adult and recently had an accident or is permanently disabled. I am an advocate for all people that want and deserve to have the intimate life they desire.
What Is Sex Coaching?
Let’s break it down. First, there is Coaching. Coaching is:
- Empowering and empowerment based
- Present and future focused
- Results driven
- A fluid process
We ask, “What do you want?”, “What’s in the way?”, and, “How can we get you there?”
Now, you pair that with Clinical Sexology. A Clinical Sexologist studies human sexual behavior and expression, specifically, the study of what people do sexually and how they think and feel about it.
Sex Therapy vs Sex Coaching: Sex Coaching uses the following approaches for helping people overcome or resolve their sexual and/or relationship roadblocks:
- Collaborative, not hierarchical
- Judgment free
- Personalized education
- Participatory, not passive
Why Would You Need To Speak With A Sex Coach?
I believe that pleasure is a human right…for everyone! People come to a sex coach with concerns that need to be worked on, specific sexual and/or intimate goals of how they want their sex life to be or look like, possibly some sex education, sexual resources, overall coaching and support. Some sexual concerns, like sexual trauma, may need a therapist, so sex coaching can occur after therapy goals are met or concurrently if nearing your therapy goals.
IS A SEX COACH THE SAME AS A SEX THERAPIST?
The short answer is no. Sex therapy is a much longer process where you often dive into the childhood anchorage and analyze or diagnose physical or emotional challenges that involve sex. Sex coaches have a more direct approach when it comes to dealing with sex and concerns or blocks. We coach and guide as one team.
What does a session look like
Sex coaching is not hands-on – meaning, there is no touching, no nudity, no masturbation demonstrations, etc. It is talk only coaching! Please respect that. Clients sessions can be over the phone, Facetime, Zoom, or In-person. Individual sessions as well as packages are available.
